Münster Cathedral: Calendar: 1540 to 2071

Calendar: 1540 to 2071

Beneath the main part of the astronomical clock is a round calendar and Easter chart. Impressively, the years listed on the calendar are 1540 to 2071. In the center is a figure of St. Paul; the current day is pointed out by a soldier with a rod on the lower left. The outer circle lists the days and the saints associated with them. The inner circle has twelve medallions painted with the Labors of the Months.
